2016-0035.jpgOn top of all the other things I’m handling in my day to day routine (CEO of Nice 2 Media Marketing & Promotions, LLC and now afternoon personality for WAMO100, Pittsburgh), I am now music & content coordinator for an online station called Urban Media Today Radio; a product of Urban Media Today online magazine.

The station is an Urban AC music format that includes music, entertainment reporting, sports (coming soon) and finance commentary (also coming soon). It’s not as easy as one would seem it is but I really like it! I hope you will too!

You can find the online station via Live365 online or through the free app which Urban Media Today also carries on iPhone and Android.

I’ve always wanted to program a station so this is a dream come true for me. One that is extremely challenging as well as super fun!

If you’re ever in need of checking out a new UrbanAC station online, log onto www.UrbanMediaToday.com and let me know what you think by emailing me at PD@UrbanMediaToday.com!

I Am Whole Mentoring Program For Young Ladies Coming To Pittsburgh

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , ,

I met a young lady a few months ago through a business contact and I was amazed by her excitement when she was sharing with me her vision about a new non profit she had been working on called I Am Whole Mentoring. That young lady was Maryilyn Hornsby (pictured below in the center), the Founder and CEO of I AM Whole Mentoring.

The mentoring program is for young women ages 15-25 in the city of Pittsburgh who are longing for mentoring (of course), extended education assistance, job readiness, etiquette, and so much more!

The organization hosted a recruitment and informational in Pittsburgh in July and hosted over 25 aspiring mentors and mentees who are looking forward to starting the new Fall season with some informative events and projects.

I’m excited to see something like this come to the city for our young ladies. For years, I’ve been thinking of starting a non profit (and I will…when I have enough time) and although this concept has been duplicated over and over by so many people, I Am Mentoring is a personal venture from one woman who saw a need to supply the right resources to women not just of younger ages, but those older and more mature who are also struggling to find a happy medium.

If you would like more information, become a mentor or mentee, email info@IAMWholementoring.org.

Make sure you support Mrs. Hornsby and I AM Whole Mentoring. It’s a wonderful thing and our young ladies really could use more good mentors, don’t you think?

Wait! Whet??? Kendu Wants MJB To Pay How Much In Spousal Support?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

I’m not sure if you agree but I don’t think Kendu (Mary J. Blige’s soon to be ex-husband) deserves any type of settlement, but obviously a divorce court judge might feel he does.

The Jasmine Brand is reporting that Kendu Isaacs WANTS MJB to pay HIM (yes…she has to pay HIM) $100K a month in spousal support.

Are you ready for this? Here is the list of necessities in order for him to live a NORMAL life (post Mary):

The items include: $5,000 a month to support his parents, $4,971 for two children from a past relationship, $1,200 he pays on eating out and the $60,000 in rent he owes to several properties, $2,500 on auto expenses and transportation, $5,708 for a housekeeper and maintenance on his properties and another $1,723 on groceries.

My recommendation, he should start prepping his food on Sunday’s like I do and pitch a Back To Life…Back To Reality TV show with Mike Epps’ ex-wife since clearly they have the same goals in life! #THIRSTY

#LipSync4Lupus Challenge With Baltimore’s Most Talented TV and Radio Personalities

2014-06-10 06.31.52

Ever sit in the car, listening to your favorite singer or rapper (whatever you listen to) and imagine you’re them, live on stage, hitting all the notes and making all the facial expressions? Yeah! Me too!

Jimma Fallon started something with the Tonight Show LipSync challenge! Then the phenom continued with the LipSync Challenge show, hosted by LL Cool J! That show is amazing! Celebs from film, television, music and everything else take the stage and live out their fantasies while performing a lipsync routine of their favorite songs; competing for the title of champion (I guess they get a trophy or money to a charity).

That is what I thought about one day while driving home from work listening to Beyonce’s “Crazy In Love”. Why not have a lipsync challenge that benefits a very important charity?

So I put some ideas together and contacted my good friend Vanessa Payne, who is currently living with lupus and has a foundation and event in support of Lupus Awareness.

Lipsync-4-Lupus-Challenge-Final-Draft

With no questions asked, LipSync 4 Lupus was born! We pitched the idea to Lupus Research Alliance and Bill Bateman’s Bistro and they were so excited to hear there will be an event to help raise money for research!

Bateman’s Bistro has agreed to donate 20% of everything sold that night (drinks/dinner) to Lupus Research Alliance. Awesome right?

Baltimore news anchors and radio personalities have formed teams to perform some old school, new school and surprise routines on September 13th at Bill Bateman’s in Reisterstown from 6P to 9P.

Talent like Patrice Sanders (FOX 45), Konan and Persia Nicole (92Q Jams), Gina & Greg (Today’s 101.9), Jammer Daniels (MIXX 106.5), Poet (WPGC) and more! Hosted by Scott Garceau (105.7 The Fan), Priestly (MIXX 106.5)! 

Join us on Tuesday, September 13th! It’s for a great cause and some of your favorite news anchors will be taking the stage!

RADIO TEAM -1 

TEAM RADIO I: Gina & Greg of Today’s 101.9, Poet WPGC and Jammer MIXX 1065

#MediaChicksRock Luncheon The Start Of A Movement

media chicks (Media Chicks Luncheon, 2016)

 

I’ve always been one to support my fellow females in the media. If they’re traffic anchors, radio pesonalities, producers, television, newspaper (print), or social media, we all work hard and deserve the same amount of respect and support as anyone else in this industry.

So, I figured why not show my ladies in the media (I call them Media Chicks) some love by inviting them to a private luncheon where we can share strories on how we got started, who motivates us, and so much more.

Vanessa Herring

(Ki Ki and WBAL’s own Vanessa Herring) 

In attendance were news anchors from WJZ and WMAR in Baltimore as well as WBAL TV, Radio One, TV One, Metro Traffic, Total Traffic & Weather, Radio One and CBS radio/TV.

 

Sharing lunch with these women was an amazing experience not just for me but for anyone looking to start a career in the industry. I’ve received advice from news veteran Kelly Swoop (WMAR) and Ashley James (WMAR) about what to expect when starting a career in television.

Nicki Mayo

(Ki Ki and Nicki Mayo go dress shopping) 

Nicki Mayo (TV One, Associated Press and President of Black Association of Black Journalists) helped me learn some pretty “bloat” appropriate poses when taking pics and wearing the right “newscaster wrap dress”.

Ki Ki and Kelly Swoop

(Ki Ki & ABC 2’s own Kelly Swoop take a selfie #MediaChicksLuncheon)

I’ve learned a lot that day and plan on doing activities like this one more often. I encourage you to do the same for others in your industry of choice. It helps get to know those you work with and learn more from them. It will help you gain a little more respect and figure out if this is where you really want to be.

Salute to all the media chicks in the entire industry! You are appreciated!

Headed To A Theater Near You: One on One w/ Kimia Workman (Actress/Dancer)

Introducing Miss Kimia Workman (Actress/Dancer) [KNOW THIS NAME]

ThisRadioChickRocks

2014-06-10 06.31.52

Kimia Workman entered a contest hosted by 92Q Jams (Baltimore) for a chance to host a portion of the Stone Soul festival and let me say SHE DID THAT!

Kimia Workman, Sheffield Institute graduate and former intern for 92Q, showed up at Druid Hill Park on time, without an entourage, and ready to work! She did so well, she received an internship with 92Q Afternoon jock, Konan and worked as a board operator for Radio One, Baltimore.

Her path has changed as she is now concentrating solely on becoming an actress; working in dramatic short films, stage plays and music videos.

Kimia not only acts but she dances and models! She’s THAT CHICK!

I can’t wait for that one day, I’m at a movie theater and I see my girl Kimmie on the screen featured as the main character or supporting actress in a major film! It’s going to happen!…

What’s NFL Sunday Without A Real NFL Chick?

You don’t know football like this chick knows football….

ThisRadioChickRocks

2014-06-10 06.31.52

I believe we met at a Mint Condition concert I attended years ago with mutual friends (and my sorority sisters) Tramaine Hickson and Dana Coleman (RIP). I thought Syreeta, I mean, The NFL Chick was a delight to be around. She’s funny and smart and she’s a woman you’re not intimidated to be around. You know those types. The ones that are so pretty, you instantly think about what might be wrong with them so it gives you an excuse to hate their guts? Nah, not Syreeta.

She and I became close a few years ago and I must say I haven’t met a woman who loved sports as much as she does. My boo is a producer for SiriusXM, calls football for Howard University and watches every freakin sports match (game, meet, whatever you call it) on TV everyday, and I still think Syreeta can take him. (sorry babe)

She’s A “Digital” Chick? One On One w/ Roxie Digital of Radio 103.9 New York

Did you read the one about….

ThisRadioChickRocks

promo-pic.jpg

I surf the web A LOT and I listen to a lot of different stations (mostly urban format) and one station in particular is Radio 103.9 (Cumulus Media) in New York City.

I found Roxie Digitalon IG and admired how she would post show content about television shows  such as Scandal, Love & Hip Hop, RHOA, and everything else that everyone else is talking and tweeting about.

She uses this information for her weekend show on Radio 103.9 which is one of the most important ingredients necessary to becoming an effective radio personality.

So of course, I had to reach out to her and ask if she wouldn’t mind sharing her expertise with This Radio Chick Rocks. She said “yes”!

Whenever you’re in New York or surfin’ the web (or in your app store), make sure you look up Radio 103.9, New York’s best mix R&B!
